Though we’ve perhaps not even been able to enjoy it fully just yet, summer won’t be around for long. And when the inevitable transition from the season’s peak into autumn begins, there is perhaps no item of clothing more important than a lightweight jacket. Not only are lightweight jackets handy on summer evenings, but they’ll also help you cross the bridge into next season a little less reluctantly.
It’s been a journey, but Highsnobiety shopping curators have put together a definitive list of the best lightweight women’s jackets around right now. From luxury pieces by the likes of Marni, Ambush, and COMME des GARÇONS Girl to hard-wearing staple items by Stüssy, these jackets all fulfill the same base purpose, but each in their own way.
